Membership within the Order is geographically-based, therefore applications of interest from the OSMTH International site are referred on to your closest or most pertinent national Grand Priory.

To illustrate, a resident of Australia would not be eligible to join the Grand Priory of Canada for the simple reason that they could not attend regular meetings nor play an active role. This policy is to ensure local ownership and encourage a sense of community. Exceptions are granted for short-term resident foreign nationals, and where OSMTH does not maintain a ground presence.

When soliciting for membership the nationally-based Grand Priory will require a brief formal letter of introduction - who you are, why you wish to join, and what qualities you believe you can offer the Order and its good works – as well as a current Resume. Applications of interest without these documents may not be considered.

OSMTH representation in each country is a reflection of local cultural identity and preference. This diversity also applies to membership criteria and procedures, which is the sole realm of the individual Grand Priory.

When you open the interactive map you will find country contacts (email links). OSMTH Grand Priories (national entities) are noted with the letters GP. Countries with mentored entities where OSMTH maintains a presence are so noted.

OSMTH’s raison d’etre is expressed through the Brussels Declaration: “Aiding humanity on the pilgrimage through life.”
